Bursts of Inspiration with XMind’s New Topic Shapes

A variety of topic shape additions in the newest version of XMind allows our users to mind map with more possibilities. An expanded collection of topic shapes satisfies multiple visual presentations in different mapping themes. Today, I will lead you to dive deeper into the applications of our new topic shapes with mind map examples.


How to Change Your New Topic Shape?

The default setting in XMind disables the Border option in Shape, and some topic shapes (e.g. brackets, quotation marks) won’t be displayed if the Border button is off. Therefore, in order to have them shown, you need to first enable the Border button. Users can then leave the borderline in default black or customize the thickness and color of the border.

Always be Ready for Professional Looks

Many standard shape options are available for professional presentation in business or academic setting, whether you go for squared looks in a product launch meeting or round bubbles when brainstorming for marketing events.

Further Clarify Topic Relationships

This time, we also add signature shapes with meanings such as the arrow and label signs. Sometimes you can directly use a certain topic shape in your map to further clarify the underlying relationships between the elements.

Add Some Cuteness to Your Life

You always need some cuteness in your life, first by adding some cuteness to your mind maps! XMind never disappoints you when it comes to creative and playful designs. New shapes like heart, cloud and star make your mapping process more entertaining and even fun for kids to give it a try.

Quote Something?

Yes, we have designed a quotation mark in topic shapes! Whenever you are quoting something famous or words by the CEO in a company speech, use this specific quotation symbol to mark your words in mind maps.
